New practice measures in compliance with Covid-19 government guidelines
I regret I am unable to offer appointments from 20th December until further notice as Greater London is under tier 4 restrictions. I will resume work as soon as I am able and will update on my website and Facebook page Rest and Rebalance . I will continue to follow the Covid-19 safe hygiene guidelines published by the government when I resume work.
Whether to give treatments:
I will not give a treatment if I or members of my household have symptoms of coronavirus or I have been in the company of someone who has tested positive for coronavirus. I will self-isolate if this should be the case.
I will ask clients to complete a health check a few days prior to the treatment and then confirm by text or email on the day of the treatment that the statements in the health check are still correct .
Clients should attend the appointment on their own where possible.
Hand sanitiser will be provided on entering and exiting the building.
All handrails and door handles will be sanitised before and after each client. All hard surfaces in the treatment room and bathroom and all equipment used will be sanitised before and after each client. Seats and the therapy couch coverings will be sanitised and soft coverings refreshed after each client.
Social distancing measures are implemented in the building by staggering therapy bookings and exercise classes where possible.
I will use a face mask or visor during the appointment. Masks are now also required for clients within new government guidelines except for facial treatments. Please bring one with you. Within the government guidelines I am unable to provide covers and drinking water at present. Please bring your own cover or throw and water with you if you wish.
I will be washing and sanitising my hands prior to starting the treatment and in some cases during the treatment.
Appointments are to be kept to a maximum of one hour at present until government guidelines change.
A faster payment transfer or BACS payment transfer is encouraged prior to treatment. Where this is not possible a correct cash payment or cheque is preferred, to reduce the need for money handling.
I will be adhering to guidelines produced by the government, the Association of Reflexologists and the Federation of Holistic Therapists regarding safe practice, hygienic practice and the use of any PPE. I will also be including in my protocols advice given in a Jennifer Young course 'Control of cross infection in a post Covid-19 world'.
